I've now used this extension on about half a dozen websites. Easy to install and configure. Easy to use. Makes you look like a genius when you put it on client sites. Thumbs up!

Module does what it says, but... It is breaking front side functionality of VirtueMart shopping carts and orders.

Any way to fix this?

I guess it's Ajax related.
Owner's reply

Might be something related to jQuery inclusion. Try to switch off "Include jQuery" option in the module.

I relly love this module! I had my skype statuss in my website after just few minutes. Really easy setup. Instructions on configuring skype were also very handy.

I really liked that you can add your own images for skype statuss.

When running the skype client as an app on windows 8 it seems that the status of my skype account is not properly shown. Only when running a skype client on a lesser version of windows it is shown al right.

- On Windows 8, in order to let the module fetch your status from Skype server, you have to use Skype for Windows Desktop: Skype for Windows 8 (Metro UI style) doesn't allow to show your status on the web.
- Login only with standalone Skype account: status from Skype account created from Microsoft or Facebook account cannot be fetched.

This is an elegant solution and nothing like it is available for Joomla so far.

I had a problem with getting this to appear on a Joomla 3.0 site and the developer, Stefano, fixed it within a couple of hours and made the updated version available on his site immediately.

The status update is very accurate and if there is an issue about this, it is most likely to do with Skype itself (it can have performance problems on some days) rather than the extension.

Got to say that is perfect.
New version v2 has all statuses included, but somehow today isn;t working like it should, but i think is not module problem, but Skype problem.
